Staff Reviews

High Score is charming with a vibrant cast of characters and clever premise. DJ and his crew of friends orchestrate the biggest heist at a local arcade to save DJ's friend from the school bully. I absolutely adored this group of friends and the obstacles they overcome to thwart the school kingpin. Howell scores big with this whimsical and witty friendship story. -- Josh C., Book Buyer

Oceans 11 goes to the arcade in this wildly entertainng heist adventure that is perfect for fans of Gordon Korman, Varian Johnson, and Celia P rez.

We do this my way.

No one gets hurt.

And if I call it off, it’s off.

Got it?

My name’s Darius James—but everyone calls me DJ. At my old school, I was the go-to guy for all kinds of tricky problems that needed creative solutions. But at my new school, Ella Fitzgerald Middle, I’m just trying to blend in.

Well, I was, anyway, until my best friend, Conor, got himself transferred to the Fitz too. Now Conor owes 100,000 arcade tickets to the biggest bully around—and he only has two weeks to make it happen. Impossible? Not with my head in the game.
